We do two [tag]softball fielding drills[/tag]–One from 2nd base and one from short. This is a good drill to work on and locate the best low glove players.
Have all the players line up single file at one of the positions with one player at 1st. One of the [tag]softball coach[/tag]es hits the ball (speed can be varied by age). After properly fielding the [tag]softball[/tag] they make a good throw to the base.
This allows us to instruct proper fielding and throwing technique. We usually end the [tag]softball practice[/tag] with this drill. We make it a fun drill/competition. If they properly field the ball they stay. If they miss the go to the bench. It usually only lasts 10 – 15 minutes.
We have also used this [tag]softball drill[/tag] for outfield/high glove instruction.
